And in a way, we have become furries -- at least for the weekend. We may never don our tails again, but we had a damn good time. Who cares if some of these people have weird fetishes? They are open-minded, good-natured, and accepting people, and all we've been doing is searching for furverts and freak shows.
Hurrah for reality checks!
BTW, I was the guy wielding the laser pointer in the first paragraph.
